Seattle Zack Greinke allowed two hits over seven innings and continued his mastery of Seattle in Kansas City’s victory Tuesday.
Greinke (5-8) is 4-0 with a 1.64 ERA in 10 career appearances against the Mariners. Last Aug. 30, he tossed a career-best one-hitter at Safeco Field, retiring the final 22 Mariners in a row.
Wilson Betemit drove in all the runs for the Royals on a fifth-inning home run, a two-out, bases-loaded infield single in the sixth and a two-out RBI single in the eighth.
Joakim Soria worked the ninth to pick up his major-league-leading 24th save in 26 opportunities.
